    Avet or ?

    Typically an Avet fan. Have HX and smaller reels. Makira SEA and Penn VISX recommended by many. Should I listen or look at EX50/2 or T-RX50/2. Want a reel to try for BFT that is bigger than HX Raptor. Avet pricing is very competitive right now.

    Avet or Penn Advise Sought

    Which Avet compares with Penn VISX 16 and 20 quality wise. EX30, 50 or TR-X50? Most of my conventional reels are Avet and I am happy with them but there has been good feedback on Penn.
